Have you seen "The Big Enchilda?" The nearly 14-pound baby who was born in Wisconsin on June 23, three weeks early? And I thought our Delaney was a big baby when she arrived, a week and a half overdue, weighing in at 10lbs., 6oz. (although, check out the blanket in this photo...that could have EASILY contributed a pound! Well, OK...maybe half a pound.) Because I've been asked about diabetes more times than I can count, let me put your mind at ease by saying I am not a diabetic, nor did I suffer from gestational diabetes during my pregnancy. In fact, I had a very healthy pregnancy and only gained 28 pounds. A week before Delaney arrived, an ultrasound suggested that she weighed in the 7-8 pound range. When she was born (via C-section following an 12-hour induction that only got me to 5 cm) one of the doctors announced, "Whoa. This one's a Whopper!" Funny, that's what "The Big Enchilada's" sister (born at 11 lbs., 8 oz.) is referred to as. Why do people make comparisons between bigger babies and fattening foods? In this case, it was the parents who blessed their daughters with these less-than-flattering monikers. Although Delaney graced the world as a larger baby, she seems to have leveled out in her weight gain and although I have no idea what she weighs now, she is happy and healthy and certainly the most adorable baby I've ever seen (proud mother beams). An added benefit to the bigger baby: she started sleeping through the night (7-8 hours) at 6 weeks old. Currently, at 13 weeks, she's snoozing a straight 11 hours each night. Now, THAT'S a Whopper.
